Facebook’s algorithm can identify you even when you’re hiding your face

Computer visions so good that Facebook reckons even when hiding your face it can detect who you are 83% of the time…With the graphing maths that sits behind each of the social networks think what that means for privacy?

Has the ‘horse already bolted?’ In Europe Facebook has said it will not be using this software because of privacy laws but what happens if an overseas friend posts your picture?

The maths and inferences of these pervasive networks make vague connections possible that maybe even our minds might not associate…

Fascinating times ahead see not just Quartz but also linked New Scientist article.

Very interesting.
